South Australia's nation-leading ban on single-use plastics, such as straws and cutlery, has come into force, with the government targeting other items to add to the prohibited list. Environment Minister David Speirs says the new laws ban the sale, supply and distribution of a range of single-use items. He says more will be added to the list in early 2022 including polystyrene cups, bowls and plates. Fines can be issued for any businesses that don't comply but, with strong consumer support for the new laws, the government believes companies will be happy to embrace the change.
